Extra-Clean Stanley SW Era no. 52 Spokeshave.

Cantello Patent Folding Drawknife.
Of all the designs of folding drawknives I like this one the best. It has spring-loaded locks in each handle that are pulled aside to allow the handles to move and engage slots at specific angles. This results in a minimum of slop and makes it easy and fast to adjust. This example is in excellent working condition. The blade is sharp, clean, and free of any pitting or discoloration. It feels like it came right off the last owner's workbench after a day's use. It's clearly stamped with "Cantello, Boston". The bevel is very sharp. The handles are in great shape. Both handles have string springs and adjust easily. There is some wear to the screw slots as some thick-headed former owner tried to torque them too tight to secure the handles rather than figure out how the locking mechanism worked. Still, the screws are usable and were recently removed and oiled to make sure they won't cause problems in the future. The design is patented Dec. 18, 1883 by John Cantello of Boston, MA. An excellent example in perfect working order

Large Dado Molding Plane.
This plane was made by the Kingston, ON planemaker J.P. Millener & Co. It's not listed in Elliot's guide to American wooden planes, nor in Goodman's guide to British molding planes. That's because it's Canadian. Hopefully this will prevent you wasting 20 minutes trying to find the maker's mark as I did. The plane was probably intended to be a 1in dado, but it's really 15/16in. It's in good shape with a perfect depth stop, some wear, and a good blade. It'll work if you need an odd size like this

Massive American Crown Molding Plane.
This crown molder was made by the Nashua, NH maker Cyrus Warren between roughly 1830-1860. It cuts a huge 4in wide ogee and bevel profile. The plane blade was made by Providence Tool Co. The blade is in good shape considering its age. The plane itself has some checks in the body that are tight. The sole profile is still dead straight. It has a nice open tote and an original fence attached to the left side. It's about as big as you'll find.. an interesting example and conversation piece for a collection or a candidate to restore and use.

Massive & Excellent Yellow Birch Crown Molding Plane.
This plane has no maker's mark I can see. The body is made from a massive piece of yellow birch 18in long by 5 1/4in wide. It has an original attached fence and excellent closed tote. The body is especially clean and in excellent condition. The blade is 3 7/8in wide and especially clean as well. It's marked "W ALLEN CAST STEEL" I imagine it's a very early 19th century American plane but I can't tell for sure without a maker's mark. I's definitely professionally made based on the high quality of the build. It's an interesting, early plane in excellent condition.

Massive Adjustable Rabbet Plane by Geo. Burnham, Amherst, MA.
This plane is 16in long and 5 1/4in wide. It has an adjustable fence and depth stop. The blade is skewed and can cut a rabbet up to 3in wide. It's a massive plane made from a beautiful piece of beech. It's in excellent condition overall and has seen very little use, if any. The blade is in decent shape- it needs a grind and has pitting in back of the working area but it's usable. The flaw is the wedge- it's a replacement and fits well enough to hold the blade in place but it's not close to original. It needs a bit of care to sharpen the blade and ideally a proper replacement wedge. The rest of the plane is in such amazing conditon, and it's such a rare size and style, that it's definitely worth the work to make it proper and usable again.

The lack of a ratchet makes it lighter and gives a better feel use since there's no gears or mechanisms in the way of the power transfer. An outstanding example in perfect user condition

Big 7/8in British Side Bead molding Plane.
This plane has had many owners over the years, each of whom fought with name stamp and mallet to claim ownership over this tool. it's been well used but remains in good working condition. The boxing is straight and the blade very clean. The maker's mark was long ago stamped over in the Fracar of the Upper Toe ca. 1900-1902. The resultant mess left us with no clear winner, only an illegible maker's mark. A good, usable plane for larger house and architectural moldings. Add your mark to it, if you can find room.
